from Abroad

Visit Tampere has a good up-to-date guide on how to get to the region.

Fly to Helsinki-Vantaa airport. There are zillions of connections.

If your flight destination is Pirkkala airport, contact the organizers early enough. We'll work out a shuttle for you!

Have a road-trip in a group with your car! From Stockholm, it's fun to take a Viking or Tallink Silja loveboat to Turku. Tune in to the zoological mode with the merry seniors and 'travel-value' refreshments.

You can also take a fast ferry from Umeå to Vaasa, from where it's just 3 hours driving to Viiala.
